Problem Installin GD for PHP

Postby mach2jh on Wed Nov 12, 2008 11:56 am

Okay, I've tried a lot of google searching and tinkered with a lot of stuff but I just can't seem to get GD working on my computer. I'm a web developer and I use GD for captcha systems. I can still implement them, but the problem is when I'm testing locally I can't actually see the captcha image because GD won't work for some reason... The image is just blank. I've gone into the synaptic package installer and installed php5-gd which by my understanding should just set up GD on my computer to work. But for some reason it doesn't. If anybody knows what's going on, or has gone through this, I could really use your help.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
